A time machine made by Professor Howard Erling (Frederic Downs) and his assistant Victor (John Stratton) brings back a deformed woman (Salome Jens) from c. 5200. The woman wants to take healthy males back with her to the future, which has been devastated by radioactivity, but her plans are foiled by Victor and Dr. Robert Hedges (Ward Costello).



Outdoor shots were filmed in and around Dade County, Florida.



The movie was featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000 during its eighth season in 1997.
